ELEVENTH  REGIMENT  OF  CAVALRY. 

Scott's  Nine  Hundred;    First  United  States  Volunteer  Cavalry. 

Colonel  James  B.  Swain  received,  October  i,  1861,  authority  from  the  War  Department 
to  recruit  this  regiment.  It  was  organized  on  Staten  Island  and  the  first  ten  companies 
were  there  mustered  in  the  service  of  the  United  States  for  three  years  between  December, 
1861,  and  May,  1862 ;  Companies  L  and  M  were  mustered  in  in  August  and  September,  1862, 
and  joined  the  regiment  in  October,  1862,  completing  its  organization.  October  25,  1862, 
the  War  Department  turned  the  regiment  over  to  the  State,  and  February  20,  1864,  it 
received  its  numerical  State  designation. 

The  companies  were  recruited  principally:  A  at  New  York  city,  Tarrytown  and  Tomp- 
kinsville ;  B  at  New  York  city ;  C  at  New  York  city,  Utica,  Tompkinsville  and  Binghamton, 
and  at  Blairstown  and  in  Warren  county,  N.  J. ;  D  at  Canton,  Colton,  Pitcairn,  Potsdam 
and  Ogdensburg;  E  at  New  York  city,  Southampton,  Bridgehampton,  Quogue,  Tompkins- 
ville and  Coram;  F  at  New  York  city,  Fulton,  Lisle  and  Brooklyn;  G  at  New  York  city, 
Troy,  Lisle  and  Williamsburg,  and  at  Newark,  N.  J. ;  H  at  New  York  city,  Brooklyn,

L  at  New  York  city,  Buffalo,  Canton,  Lewis  and  Westport;  and  M  at  Buffalo,  Canton, 
Fowler  and  Gouverneur. 

The  regiment  left  the  State  May  5,  1862,  and  served  in  the  Military  District  of  Wash- 
ington and  22d  Corps,  and  a  detachment  of  it  in  the  8th  Corps,  Middle  Department,  from 
May,  1862;  in  the  Department  of  the  Gulf  from  March  14,  1864;  at  La  Fourche,  La.,  from

of  the  Gulf,  from  August,  1864;  in  the  Department  of  the  Cumberland  from  March,  1865. 

July  21,  1865,  those  entitled  thereto  having  been  discharged,  the  regiment  was  consoli- 
dated into  a  battalion  of  four  companies,  A,  B,  C  and  D;  Company  A  being  formed  of 
Companies  A,  F,  G  and  K;  B  of  B,  E,  L  and  M;  C  of  C,  H  and  I;  and  D  of  D  and 
H,  and  some  of  the  members  of  Company  B.  This  battalion,  commanded  by  Maj.  Geo.  W. 
Smith,  was  mustered  out  and  honorably  discharged  September  30,  1865,  at  Memphis,  Tenn. 

The  regiment,  during  its  service,  lost  by  death,  killed  in  action,  10  enlisted  men;  of 
wounds  received  in  action,  i  officer,  14  enlisted  men;  of  disease  and  other  causes,  3 
officers,  319  enlisted  men;  total,  4  officers,  341  enlisted  men;  aggregate,  345;  of  whom 
8  enlisted  men  died  in  the  hands  of  the  enemy.  The  large  number  reported  drowned  is 
due  principally  to  the  foundering  of  the  steamer  North  America  off  the  coast  of  Florida, 
December  22,  1864. 

It,  or  portions  of  it,  took  part  in  the  following  engagements,  etc. :
